Hotfoot Posted June 16, 2009 Report Share Posted June 16, 2009 Since my favorite tire has recently been discontinued (see the other tire thread going on right now), I am considering buying a few sets of them now, while I can still get them, which begs the question - how long can I store them and how fresh do they need to be when I buy them? I know this has probably been discussed before, but I couldn't easily find the info, so here is the question again. I know how to look at the manufacture date, but how old is OK? A year? 6 months? And if I store the tires in a garage (which can get hot) how long before they start to go off? Can I store them another 6 months? I have gotten spoiled buying tires right at the track, where I know they have been recently manufactured and stored properly. Now I am going to have to find discontinued tires from suppliers that still have them - so I might be getting some stuff that's been sitting on a shelf for a long time. How old is too old?
